Our building is closed but we're open 24/7 online!

An Important Message From The Director:
Due to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the Library is closed until at least June 13th. We will continue to monitor the situation, and this date may change. Our bookdrop is locked. Please keep materials until we reopen. Fines that are accrued during this time period, will be waived.

We assure you that we will reopen as soon as we possibly can. In the meantime, feel free to use our online resources. We are adding to our ebook and audiobook collections, through Overdrive/Libby apps. If you own a Kindle, know that you can use this app to download digital content to your Kindle app, on your Kindle or Kindle app on your own device. Use the Ask a Librarian link to ask us how to do this. Or, ask a Reference question. Librarians are not in the building, but are still happy to answer questions.
If you live in Plainedge and don't have a library card (which you need for all of our online resources), please click on 'Library Card Registration,' and you will get a temporary card that you can use for our online resources.
We are trying to get more online content for you. Please follow us on Facebook. We are putting up lots of great activities and information there.

“A library is a focal point, a sacred place to a community; and its sacredness is its accessibility, its publicness. It’s everybody’s place".” - Ursula K. Le Guin
